Giving a try to Google Map Maker

Last month I watch a video on YouTube about Google map maker.
It sounds cool contributing on something you know, and many people use. So I decide to start checking Google maps and find one mistake. I report it, at the beginning I though it was going to be reject it. But I was wrong, two days ago I received an email informing me that my suggestion was approved. So if you like Google maps and find some mistake you can edit it go ahead.

After this experience with google maps, I will give a try to OpenStreet

  1. The biggest problem with contributing to Google maps is that you are essentially doing free work so that a company can wrap the free work you did in a proprietary license, make the source (the vector data) unavailable to anyone including yourself, and then profiting from it.
    It IS cool doing work on something millions of people will use, but doing free work for Google Maps just to so you can work on a widely used product would be like contributing to Microsoft Windows for free.
    If map making interests you then I would strongly suggest going the OpenStreetMap path, which is also used be a very large number of people, but is free as in freedom, and is not work done just for the private interest of a for profit company.

Ansible using plugins for dynamic inventories

This is a small post about how to use inventory plugins in Ansible. If you are looking the script way I recommend to read this article: http://gloriasilveira.com/setting-up-ansible-for-aws-with-dynamic-inventory-ec2.html It explains really good this or you can watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnbqO1kTPqE&t=6s But if you’re looking to use inventory this article can help you. First of all, why should I used inventory if all over the internet they’re using the python scripts? Well, Ansible recommends it: Inventory plugins take advantage of the most recent updates to Ansible’s core code. We recommend plugins over scripts for dynamic inventory. You can write your own plugin to connect to additional dynamic inventory sources. https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/user_guide/intro_dynamic_inventory.html The actual ansible guide is quite good, but there was a step that got me confused, probably my english isn’t so good and I didn’t understood it.
